CORVETTE TODAY - Kevin Mackay Talks About The Cunningham Corvette & Bringing It Back To Life

In 1960, Briggs Cunningham took 3 Corvettes to France to race at Le Mans. After that race, the cars were brought back to the United States, put back to original and sold to consumers. The #3 car was recovered about put back to the way it was when it raced in 1960 at Le Mans and is owned by a private owner. https://youtu.be/_g_9Eah8pS8; https://podcasts.adorilabs.com/corve...FbtXiohpLYxLCh The car is owned by Bruce Meyers of the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. But what happened to the car? After a long legal battle, Kevin Mackay from Corvette Repair in Long Island, New York, has been putting this historic Corvette back to it's original 1960 livery for the past year (after it was purchased by Briggs Cunningham's family at auction). Kevin comes back on CORVETTE TODAY to tell the story of the Cunningham Corvette and to tell you when and where you can see this car...with its two siblings! If you love the history of Corvette and its racing past, DO NOT MISS this episode of CORVETTE TODAY. www.CorvetteToday.com

    While I don't hate the wheels we have seen on the test cars, they do have one unfortunate resemblance

    I am with you on not being a fan. Let’s hope that they have at least one more up their sleeve, in addition to these two:

      I'm with you, these two designs down right suck. I'm also hoping something better is out there.

            While not new, the 2017+ GS wheels (which first debuted for the HP late C6 versions), were/are easy to clean. Also, as GM has publicly said, “they are the lightest and strongest wheels we have ever put on a Corvette.

            How about those as a return option, or maybe that wheel with some minor changes, including a machined finish version? Following picture thanks to “gold pony.”

                Easy to clean and elegant, but most important light and strong, for as we know, less unsprung weight is a huge betterment toward better handling.

                  Can't you use your influence? Call attention to the "Pentastar" resemblance while you're at it.

                      That wheel has a "directional" thing going on which irks me considerably if the same wheel is used both sides. It's a pet peeve.

                        Although few and far between, they came in comp grey and machine face as well (would love to see something like this on the ME):

                          I love the combo of comp grey and silver. A friend and I had C6 Z06’s in silver. I got chrome wheels, and he got the comp gray. Parked side by side, his looked so much meaner than mine. I love the look of his car. Told him if he came out some morning and saw chrome wheels on his, to not call the Police — that I had just borrowed his wheels. He is about 6’5” tall, 260 with lots of muscle, and just gave me “the look.” Needless to say, I never “borrowed his wheels.”

                          Chrome looks good on darker colors IMO, but while I would not be getting it myself on any ME color, perhaps GM will offer it as an ME option.

                            I had a C6 Callaway Grand Sport that was silver with comp grey wheels for 4 years. Great looking rig. I miss that car, but I sold it to get my Callaway C7 Z06, and I'm not letting that one go.

                            There's a lot you can do with comp grey and machined face designs. Heck, just changing up tints (and they really need to go forged and powder coated) can make a huge difference.

                            But the cup wheels are simply a classic design that is still fresh - and one IMO that would work well on the ME - i.e. fit its "personality"

                              While I agree with John about the C7 GS wheels, wholeheartedly, the aftermarket is loaded with gorgeous wheels, that in many cases, are stronger, lighter and offer a wide variety of styles and colors. One of the single easiest changes available to personalize your magnificent new ME. Not to mention the aftermarket may continue to be the only “made in the U.S.A.” Resource. My C7 Z06 came stock with “made in China” wheels. What a heart breaker.
